Approach to Teaching & Learning:
I have always had a profound respect for education, and the important role that it plays in those who are fortunate to have a change to receive it. As an educator, I try to teach the student the value of their own creativity and to appreciate the value of the subjects that they are taught at school. Even though I have taught both Art and English, I have always placed an emphasis on creativity in all my classes. This helps to inspire students to want to learn more and to approach challenges and new ideas from unique and illuminating perspective.
